1970s Wildcard Rate

Thanks to everyone who submitted their nominations for this. Below is the list of your tracks (and a few of my nominations which you accidentally forgot to include tongue.gif ) which peaked outside the Top 40 (41-75). If your nominated track does not appear here, then that's because it didn't reach the UK Top 75 during the 1970s (or it made the Top 40). Soz ohmy.gif
